And the plates on the tow truck.....

The trip was a blast. We had a great time. Tried a few things at Tahuya that we had not before. The goal with our outings to give the missus more time wheeling off road, and give the kid a little experience in her TJ. So far we are doing fine with that. Obivious in the videos and pics posted. Thanks to those folk for doing that.

The rest of the story:

The Youtube video shows pretty much what I did. From there, keen minds went to work.



Ron pulled out the hy-lift, Thane puulled out a strand of cable and clamps, I pulled out the come-along and the ratchet straps. In a about 45 minutes, the end result.



That patch held up through the eastern part on the northern loop, and then back down to Belfair Strabucks. We sat around and had coffee, as well as breakfast sandwiches that the starbucks staff said they were going to trash.

Mr. Fish and his better half hung out with us for about an hour, then they needed to head out. Wrecker sahowed up about 6:45pm, he was impressed that I could drive it up on the flat bead with a broken tie rod. We got home around 8pm. All that said, We had a blast. I owe folks some hardwear, I have not torn it down yet. I am working with Sean at NR to discuss Currie warranty. He is saying Currie wants me to call them. Ought to be an interesting call.

Looks like you guYs had a good time. Bob, what a bummer. I hope the warranty stuff works out. I suffered a little damage from my last trip out there also. I will be installing a new u-joint this weekend.

Hi all. I saw you guys out there nursing that tie rod back to life near the south loop. I was a yellow tj unlimited rubicon out on her maiden voyage behind that group of yotas. Would have stopped but had no tools or know how and was late. Besides looked like you all had it well under control. Found out jeeps are like goats and can climb anything. Hope to see you all out there again so i can have someone to follow so i dont get as lost. First post so yellow 2006 unlimited rubicon bone stock.

I remember you. Our yellow Jeep driver had a bit of a double-take freakout when she saw your Jeep coming up the trail. "What the ... is that my ... oh, no, mine's still over there."

Spoke with David at Northridge. I guess there is a thead detailing the issues with my Currie tie rod over on the JK-Forum. I could not find it. There is an upgrade kit out that I have to pay for, but will get reimbursed once I send the old tie rod back. I keep the ends to use on the upgrade kit. Still not a bad deal. And I have to say that Chris at Currie was good to work with. Stated the kit should be here in a day or two. So, I should be back on the road by the end of the week. And when it's all said and done, I am not out anything.
Chris did say I was the 3rd or 4th to report this problem.

The plan is to head back there on 4/1. A friend from Portland is bringing up his YJ. He hasn't been up here yet. You are more than welcome to join us. I will get a separate thread up on it later.

Looks like a great time. Any plans to head out again I am defiantly interested should hopefully get my jeep back before next weekend. Getting my locked 8.8 with 4.88's and matching Dana 30 put in. So I will be down for some testing.
